Great information, set in a story mode that makes trying to stop very difficult. A keeper.
I'm proud of Vinny but really never quite picked up on where the book was going or ended up. It's not a fitness book and it's a personal story that's misguided and a bit lost at time. I'm happy Vinny was the reader and he's interesting to listen to, boring fun. It kept me occupied during my commuting hours.
The mini stories he told and the way he would get off topic. That was hilarious.
The narration was Perfect. You can tell he is a cool person.
Cut the crap!!!
Awesome. Just awesome. Now if I can just cut the crap!
I lost 20 lbs in less than 3 months after listening to this book (& following Vinnie on Twitter) because of the motivational aspect of this book. Vinnie's read adds to the character and sincerity of the work. It's clear from listening that Vinnie is committed to helping people by setting an example & coaching folks up to believe in themselves. Well worth the cost & time to listen.
Vinnie lays out his life story, his ups and his downs and it is quite moving and inspirational. I feel like I have known him for years now. His story has changed my life, hopefully forever! Wish I would have listened to it months ago after the first time I heard him on the Adam Carolla show. Thanks Vinnie!
I can't believe how well this book is put together. Vinnie telling the story adds so much passion. For those who want less story and more instruction, listen to his podcast. This book and podcast have made me realize I could change my ways and follow a NO SUGAR NO GRAIN diet. I can't wait for the next book. Amazing!
"Provides a great insight and some good tips"
It provides some great advice and tips while also being engaging and entertaining
I had no idea who Vinnie was or what he did and took a chance in downloading this book. it ticked all the boxes, informative, interesting, engaging and funny.
"Entertaining and worth a listen"
Yes it gives a useful insigt into the authors journey
If they wanted a fitness book with a different slant then yes!
Yes it was worth listening to..
A different slant on a fitness book which kept me entertained and the underlying message with regard to Carbs etc.. has some good real foundation currently.
"grows on you"
among the best
At first I thought it would be wacky American but Vinnie conversationalist style grows on you and I really enjoyed
no other audio books listed
too long for that but listened every opportunity I got
Would like another book by him
